Description

Each on triangular base cast on three ram's mask feet, the fluted Corinthian column stems with ribbon-tied borders and acanthus capitals topped by three reeded scrolls and shells holding the central fluted socket. The three detachable branches formed of two reeded scrolls applied with vine-leaves and tendrils.

The base applied with a coat-of-arms beneath a crest, hallmarked on the base, central light, branches, capitals and sconces.

The candelabra stamped with the retailer’s mark of ‘GARRARD PANTON STREET LONDON’.
Each branch numbered 1 to 6

The arms are those of Eaton, probably for Henry Eaton (1816-1891) later created 1st Baron Cheylesmore in 1887, politician and art collector who owned Landseer's Monarch of the Glen.
